Hi unknown_routine,

grep won't evaluate the line and show you lines where B>0, but it can scan the lines at tell you where the string 'B>0' exist.  Or, as you seem to want where a string doesn't exist.

# find all lines with B=0

grep 'B=0' myfile

# find all lines that do not contain B=0

grep -v 'B=0' myfile

# find all lines with B>0

grep 'B>0' myfile



Good Luck,
Kent
